I went to Rouen recently with my son and we visited the Historial de Jeanne D'Arc on Rue Saint Romain. This is a new attraction having only be open for a week or so and is well worth a visit. As with many of of the best museums in France it brings history to life in a very creative way,... More

Three of us rented a small apartment on this street. Our building was 300-400 years old, half timbered and plaster. Many small shops on the street. It was one block from Notre Dame Cathredal and just a little farther to City Center. We were within walking distance of everything we needed; markets, restaurants, shops, museums, etc. Just to the North... More

The buildings surrounding this square is beautiful and made me think I was in Germany instead of France. There's lots to see, including the spot nearby where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake.

Lovely little area, just a stroll on a nice day, like the rest of the town. Go when the shops are open though, more of a buzz.

A walk down this street will take you back to another time and place! There are structures/houses that have been standing for centuries; some look like they are leaning precariously. The walkways are narrow and uneven, and paved with cobblestones. Very charming!

For a little side street, Rue Saint-Roman is packed with interesting businesses. OK, the location is ideal - just on the north side of the cathedral. We did some shopping there - found some lovely glassware and great chocolate. And we didn't get a chance to eat at the creperie on the street, but it looked nice. And of course... More

The Rue Saint-Romain is a narrow pedestrian street leading eastwards from the northern side of the Notre Dame Cathedral Square. Its main feature is the variety of coloured half-timbered Gothic and Renaissance buildings, mostly sitting above shops and boutiques. The old buildings date variously from between the 15C and the 18C and, in my opinion, are worth a short visit... More

It's interesting to walk down this street. On an old wall near the cathedral there is a plaque that says something about the inquiry ordered by Charles VII into Joan of Arc's trial several years earlier. I like the courtyard outside of the cathedral--it has a statue of St. Romain.

It's convenient to everything but a little noisy :) Since everyone passes by here to get between the two cathedrals, I hear all languages throughout the day as the tour guides pass by.
